Ne Zha is advertising itself as the next-level-up to 2015 surprise hit Monkey King: Hero is Back.


When the world was created, the essences of heaven and earth gave birth to a brilliant gem. It was split into two, one good and one evil. When the two gems are accidentally switched and the chosen hero to defeat evil was reincarnated with the evil gem, which side will he chose?

A retelling of the classic story of Nezha, animated feature Ne Zha 哪吒之魔童降世 released its first set of promotional music, posters, and trailers. Reviews for the film, to be released on July 26th, have so far been extremely positive, in particular praising its script. Will it be able to be the previous animated hit Monkey King: Hero is Back, whose script was probably its biggest weakness?

The Rap of China winner Gai sings the mesmerizing theme song of the same name below:
